Parents deliver children to the gate and, except for Nursery and Reception, do not enter the premises. A member of staff will be on the gate to speak to, for any messages, although you can also:

  • leave a message with the school office;
  • make an arrangement for a call back later in the day.

Whole school assemblies take place 09:15 to 09:30 on Mondays and Fridays.
